Someone is attempting to achieve a stranglehold on the political and Constitutional process in this country. The question is...who, exactly?
Just last year
I think it's becoming increasingly obvious that who he is, or was, or will be is totally irrelevant.
He is a face. He is a puppet.
His approval rating drops daily, he is questioned about his policies, he makes excuses, he fumbles almost every state appearance and has made an international fool of himself.
Yet, he presses on, seemingly unconcerned about what people think of his positions or the loss of hope for reelection. If he were to run for reelection today, some people say that
He is dragging the Democrats down with him, and the election in 2010 is looking like it's going to be a bloodbath.
Why is this party so willing to commit political suicide? What makes them so determined to pass laws that are 180 degrees opposite of what the majority of the voters want?
I can understand liberal ideology running rampant, as it has in academia for about 60 years, but usually an ideology stops short of becoming a mainstream reality because there just aren't enough people that are willing to stand behind a radical position.
I don't think this is ideology. This is something much more like human power and greed. The question is, whose?
The Democrats don't appear to have a lot of hope for retaining Congress after November. Obama is sinking like a rock.
Who is pulling the strings and what do they have to bargain with?
Why is Obama and his party virtually throwing themselves under the bus, and who is going to ultimately benefit?
I keep expecting a block of Dems to suddenly come to their political senses and at least question the direction, but they just announce that they are not seeking reelection, and stick with the gang.
So, does this seem odd to anyone but me?
